Icicle sculpture created by cars.  Nature at work and looking pretty.

I’m usually a bit earlier.  It’s almost 4pm here and it’s been a nice day if you weren’t cursing your puter software.  In this case my Kodak EasyShare.
Hmmm. All depends on what you mean by ... all together now ...  Easy Share huh?  And I have the new improved upgrade version.  Yeah.  When it locks up my computer, it’s stays locked longer then it did before.
Then I get that message that tells me the program isn’t responding.  Well Duh!  I know that.

Oh right the posting here. You don’t need to be bored with that other stuff.  That’s what Drew is for if I can find where he’s hiding. lol

Just thought this was different enough and nice enough to start my new year posting.  Not to worry though.  Things are still nasty out there and I’ll get to it all real soon.

This icicle sculpture might look magical but there is a natural explanation for it.

It has been created by cars splashing through a puddle and shooting water on to the branches of a tree.

As the water ran off it created scores of icicles and has formed an ice sculpture.

The 10 foot-high icicles were created on the outskirts of Skelmersdale in Lancashire.

They are a beautiful reminder of just how cold the start to the year has been.

Temperatures dropped as low as 25F (-4C) in northern England on the night of New Year’s Eve, while they struggled to top 41F (5C) in parts on New Year’s Day.

The weather is set to remain cold for the next few days, according to the Met Office. Snow and sleet are forecast to fall across swathes of Britain on Sunday and Monday.

Much of the cold weather Britain has had in recent days is due to fronts which have originated in Russia, where temperatures have been bitterly cold.

In Oymyakon, in Siberia, temperatures plunged to -90F (-68C) at the beginning of December.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
